For those worried about it bombing, Solo: A Star Wars Story has Already Gained Back its Budget, and then some. I didn't know that with the reshoots, Solo's total cost was $250 million, making it the most expensive Star Wars movie ever made. As of Wednesday it's worldwide gross was over $270 million. It's still #1 in the box office.


Thank the Force. I'm thinking of going to see Solo again at the Uptown again before it goes away next week. I'll probably go Saturday night.

But yeah, it's really good to see that Solo didn't flop and is even doing better than breaking even.

The friend I went to the show with said that Howard reshot like 80% of the film?

Probably closer to 40% of what they already had when he stepped in. I'm not sure what % of the original film had already been shot when Howard took over (I'm thinking about half), but we do know that Ron Howard shot 70% of the final product, which was required for him to have sole credit as director. So when he stepped in they probably looked at what he had still to shoot, and then out of the footage they already had, decided what to reshoot, to get to that 70% total. The original directors got Executive Producer credits, which I think is fair since they did lead the move through pre-production and half of principle photography.

This is cool. I caught most of these references on my first viewing, and a few more on my second viewing. Are there any others not mentioned here?

Here are some more references. So much cool stuff!

Quote:
HAN: So this is sa-back ?
LANDO: Sabacc.
HAN: Sabacc – got it.
LANDO: You played before?
HAN: A couple times, yeah.
LANDO: Captain Lando Calrissian.
HAN: Han Solo. Looks like you’re having a good day.
LANDO: I’m a lucky guy.
HAN: Can I ask you a question, Captain Calrissian?
LANDO: Anything, Han.
HAN: It’s Han, but that’s OK.

I love how Lando's perpetual mispronunciation of Han matches Han's original mispronunciation of Sabacc. It's like Lando was offended by the mispronunciation of his favorite game and keeps making fun of him for it.

Quote:
HAN: I have a really good feeling about this!

LANDO: I hate you.
HAN: I know.

My son and I watched Solo for the 4th time tonight (We maintained the pattern of seeing it every 8 days since premiere night). It is so much fun! I would have to say this will probably be the last time we see it in the theater though.

Being the third weekend of release and the box office being under projection, I thought there would be no trouble getting in so we just showed up at the theater after lunch and got denied because it was sold out. Then we checked the next showing and it was almost sold out with only crappy up front seats left over. So I checked another theater on my phone and their next showing was nearly sold out, and the checked their next time and got in. We went home and called my dad and then hung out until it was time to go, and then when we got into our showing during the trailers, it was packed. Granted both of these theaters only had Solo showing on one screen, but it looked like a lot of fathers took their kids to see Star Wars in the theater today. I hope they had a good day at the box office.

Go see Solo in the theater again while you can!
